Ofoborh and next season
Greetings from an AFCB fan and congratulations on your season and promotion!
Sadder times for us but that's football. One of the positives about going down is that I think we may see some of our youth prospects given a chance to play some matches again. There have been a few knocking about the last couple of seasons but the PL was so brutal I think Howe was afraid to play them. On the occasions where injury forced us into it, things didn't go so well!
So I was curious how Ofoborh got on for you this season? I know he scored in the semi final but it doesn't look like he played that many games, all things considered. Do you think he's ready for Championship football or might be sent out on loan to League 1 again?
I'll be honest in that he wasn't one of the youngsters on my radar until his move to you, with my eyes more on Kilkenny, Surridge and Dobre. I'm hoping he's showed something in his games!
Also, how's Rocky getting along? He was a little unlucky in his time with us in that the team developed too quickly and he couldn't keep up. I always felt there was at least a Championship keeper in there if he was given the proper chance and he should just about be in his prime now so maybe your promotion is well timed!
Good luck next season. It's been an unreal few seasons for us but I still remember how amazing it felt to finally get into the Championship, our only previous spell there being under Redknapp which is a distant youthful blur for me. You'll have a blast!
